Lawyers Connect Overview


Responding to the challenges of being a busy young attorney or law student, the City Bar created Lawyers Connect, a mix of live events and online programming for young attorneys, be it through age or professional experience, and law students who want to take an active role in their career. Lawyers Connect was created to help you excel in your professional life, maintain a personal life, and enjoy your legal career.

Join us October through May at First Thursdays, a series of events where you can create and grow both professional and personal relationships. First Thursdays events occur every other month and feature activities from speed networking to Trivia Night to a Whiskey Tasting, a Beer Tasting featuring local breweries, and--most recently and well-reviewed--a Tequila Tasting.

In addition, enhance your management, communication, and other important skills at our Career Development Programs.

Lawyers Connect: Virtual Summer Wine Tasting
Thursday, June 10, 2021 | 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Program Fee: $75 Members | $95 Non-Members
Shipping may be extra for those more than 50 miles outside of NYC

Join us for a taste of summer with a guided virtual wine tasting from the comfort of your own home!

Whether you’re already a wine enthusiast or novice, participants will have the opportunity to network while tasting and learning about wine, what to look for when selecting a wine, and what to pair with wine.

Three full-size bottles will be shipped directly to you in advance of the program – straight from Brooklyn’s own Happy Cork, a popular, female and minority-owned wine and spirits shop.

The Happy Cork’s wine expert will walk us through the tasting as we sample a red blend, a rosé, and a white wine.

Space is limited - register by May 20th for this fun and educational program so your wine kit can be shipped directly to you before the event! Must be 21 and over to participate.
